My mother always told me that a good night’s rest begins at the start of each day when you’re sitting down for breakfast. It’s a bit arbitrary of course, but it makes perfect sense. Skipping a meal that would have otherwise delivered a hefty dose of calories and nutrients would leave you at a disadvantage. How else is your body going to repair itself if it doesn’t have the fuel it needs to assist in its thousands of internal processes? Do yourself a favor and assist in tissue repair, recovery, and healing by providing nutrients in the form of a healthy smoothie.

Flaxseed is known as one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet, and it stars in this healthy breakfast alternative. There’s even evidence that flaxseed may, in fact, help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. (1) We use whole flaxseeds in this recipe because although it is recommended to use ground flaxseeds for better digestion and assimilation, the blending process will help break it down anyway so you don’t have to worry about it passing through without being absorbed properly.
This recipe also features the ever-popular sweet pineapple that tastes amazing in smoothie recipes because it delivers just the right amount of sweetness in addition to its many health benefits such as decreased inflammation, reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases, reduced risk of developing infections, and more. (2) The frozen bananas on the other hand contain several bioactive compounds, such as phytosterols, carotenoids, and phenolics which have antioxidant properties that help protect the body against various diseases including many chronic degenerative disorders. (3) Kale needs no introduction, since it has been shown in countless research studies to have numerous health benefits such as reduced inflammation, reduced risk of chronic diseases, lower incidence of certain types of cancer, and more.
To round up your smoothie, add in some honey and milk. The combination of honey and milk boosts the calcium content of your smoothie, which is already high from the kale content, and adds a delicious boost of flavor to it. Don’t forget to add some ice to make it the perfect refreshing drink to bring on the go.
This on-the-go breakfast snack delivers incredibly well and lets me make the most of a busy day in the office and at the gym. Now it’s your turn to enjoy all the benefits associated with kale smoothies.
